RDP through VPN does not work now (used to work)
Posted on 2007-04-02
I have a strange situation with remote desktop. I had a single 2003 server, AD, DNS, DHCP, and RRAS, that needed to be taken down for a couple of days. I installed a second server, promoted it, configured DNS, DHCP, and took the first server down for maintenance. Then I brought the first server back on line, but did not have it run DHCP. Both servers have a part of the scope, so this is not a problem. Users used to be able to VPN in and connect to PCs/Servers on the network. Then they could not, so I checked DNS records. There were some conflicting entries, so I modified as necessary. Everything works fine from the inside - ping by name, ping by IP, remote desktop. VPN is able to connect from the outside, and ping internal resources by FQDN and ip. I can connect to shares on the servers using UNC. However, when I try and rdp into a server from outside through the VPN it just hangs. I never get the logon screen, just the error message that says the connection to the remote computerwas broken....
